How did the licensing industry originate and grow to be a $300 billion global industry? And how are the best-in-class brands today utilizing licensing to enhance their consumers’ brand experience?
Using powerful storytelling and unique access to the personal perspectives of top-flight marketers who have developed truly world-class business growth programs, I show how successful marketers have extended and expanded their brands and the challenges they have had to overcome along the way.
I co-created, with Mark Di Somma, LASSO, a multifaceted model that offers simple, accessible and effective ways for marketers to get their heads around the desired attributes of highly successful growth programs. Utilizing 5 proven steps and a dynamic algorithm, marketers can measure whether their brands are under- or optimally expanded, empowering them to take decisive action.
With insightful advice, anecdotes and tips from leading brand licensing professionals, senior marketers and inspiring individuals covering household names like Coca-Cola and Disney, Expand, Grow, Thrive offers a measured and proven “Think Big, Get Big” framework to truly help your brand first expand, then grow successfully, and ultimately thrive.
